Based on The Gospel According to St. Matthew
This immensely successful rock opera needs little introduction, but when it was first produced on Broadway in 1971, it broke new ground in its stage treatment of the historical Jesus Christ. Based on the Gospel according to St. Matthew it deals with the last days of Jesus, and includes dramatized versions of several well-known parables. And yet it is something more – a religious experience, a demonstration of joy, and a celebration of the family of man. The cast are conceived as clowns, improvising scenery and costumes, and using many well-known theatrical devices, pantomime vaudeville and varied musical styles to interpret one of humanity’s greatest events.
SPECIAL OFFER: SUNDAY SHOW ONLY
Children who see the show can visit the Easter Bunny! They will also get a certificate to purchase one $5 ticket to see any June performance of High School Musical (when accompanied by 2 adults or 2 seniors at regular pricing).
